Police on Tuesday arrested four foreigners, including a British employee of Merrill Lynch Japan, and six Japanese for possession and use of illegal drugs at two nightclubs in Roppongi on May 11.
According to police, the 10 suspects were picked up after raids on the clubs DownTown and Odeon, around 8:30 a.m. on May 11 after they received a tip that illegal drugs were being traded in the clubs. Police found the 10 suspects in possession of cocaine and cannabis. Police say those clubs are known for illegal drug dealing on the Internet.
Police said the British suspect denies the allegations. He was quoted as saying, “I don't use drugs. Somebody put it in my pocket. I have no idea how it got there." Other suspects told police they bought the drugs from an "African guy" at various bars, but police have not found him.© Japan Today
